What is your favorite type of book to read?
I like science-fiction because it keeps me on the edge of my seat. I like it because you can’t really predict what’s going to happen. Science fiction books are cool because they like aren’t about like fairies and unicorns but they are made up. They tend to be more dark and mysterious.

My favorite type of book is realistic fiction. I like realistic fiction because I can imagine everything that’s written. If the book is about fire-breathing dragons I can’t really imagine it. If it’s realistic I can relate to it, which makes the book more interesting. I also like to write about realistic fiction because it’s easier to write when I can relate to the things I’m writing about and pretend that the main character is me and think like that person.

I love reading, so I’ll read almost every type of book there is! My favorite books, though, are Jewish realistic fiction, because usually I can identify with the characters and their lives.

My favorite type of book is mysteries, because they are sometimes scary and I like scary. I’ll read any mystery, just give me a mystery and I’ll read it no matter what!

My favorite types of books are autobiographies and biographies, as well as fantasy. The reason I enjoy autobiographical books is because they tell you about the life of people and catch the reader’s attention on something other than the readers life. And I enjoy reading fantasy because it lets you enter a non-realistic world and take on a fictional characters life!
